Updating the Media Kit

Updating the Media Kit

I originally put together the Gunaxin Media kit in early 2010. Since then I have updated the information a few times, but hadn’t found the time to put more effort into it. Today, I found that time, and did a more thorough update to the media kit. Since it contains screenshots of the page, and […]

Day at the Zoo

Day at the Zoo

Today I spent the day at the National Zoo with my sister and her kids who came to visit from Michigan. I don’t see them very often, so it’s nice to have a flexible schedule which allows for such things. I knocked out my real work early in the morning, and late at night, which […]
